Michael Mendheim’s bonecrunching Mutant Football League returns

by Andy Haighon 05/02/2017
If you’re a child of the 80’s then, like me, you probably had or knew someone with a Sega Megadrive (or Sega Genesis). One of the games which I recall fondly was Mutant League Football from Electronic Arts. Released in 1993 the concept was ingeniously simple. Take the popular John Madden Football ’93 game and use […]

Final trailer for Logan unleashes X-23

by Andy Haighon 22/01/2017
Like many people out there on this spinning orb we call home I’ve had a distinctly problematic relationship with the X-Men films. A franchise that seemed to rapidly become about being a vehicle for showing people with powers have poorly realised fights, rather than being an exploration of interpersonal relationships, character dynamics and society.

HIM – Episode 1

by Andy Haighon 21/10/2016
Occasionally something besides a Police or Period drama appears on British TV, a bit like it was somehow smuggled in on the sly when the suits were distracted by tea and biscuits, Being Human and Misfits are two great examples of weird British TV dramas, HIM the new supernatural drama on the other hand is […]

Supergirl meets Superman and John Williams

by Andy Haighon 28/09/2016
Whilst CBS’ Supergirl didn’t exactly wow me with its first season, I stopped watching it after the first few episodes, Superman actually being in the upcoming second season (set to be portrayed by Tyler Hoechlin) instead of just awkwardly casting a shadow over the proceedings definitely adds some potential. The move to The CW, the […]
